Word Of The Week – Calmness•
Posted on April 13 2020
In these chaotic times, we are more stressed out and anxious than ever, and calmness for many of you is just a distant dream. We are all quarantined and stressed out to the max all day every day, and that kind of stress is not good for your overall well-being. In fact, the extra stress can even cause your immune system to be weakened – and who wants that in the current situation? Plus, your mental health is super important for creating your own damn magic! So, we need to remain calm, instead of stressing out. But, how can we do that in these chaotic times when tomorrow seems uncertain?
What Is Calmness And Why Is it Important?
Calmness is an emotion that arises when you have unwavering inner strength. It’s the acceptance that life can be normal, or out of whack (just like it’s now), but how you respond to any given situation is under your control. Calmness is important because it doesn’t get you held up in a mindset of constant worry, but rather calmness leads you to search for solutions, thus developing a problem-solving mindset where everything can be resolved, and if not, it can be endured or dealt with in some other way.
How To Remain Calm?
Here are a few tips & techniques to remain calm:
- Affirmations For Calmness
Stress and Anxiety get multiplied in your thoughts, where you unconsciously develop negative mindsets. To counter that, you need to overwrite those thought patterns with positive ones. We love using weekly affirmations for turning those negative patterns into positive ones. Here are a few of our favorite harnessing calmness affirmations:

If you feel so upset that you can’t calm yourself down through any of the methods above, then you should take action.
